EOFError is raised when one of the built-in functions input() or raw_input() hits an end-of-file condition (EOF) without reading any data. This error is sometimes experienced while using online IDEs. This occurs when we have asked the user for input but have not provided any input in the input box. We can overcome this issue by using try and except keywords in Python. This is called as Exception Handling.

Example: This code will generate an EOFError when there is no input given to the online IDE.

Python3




n = int(input())
print(n * 10)


Output:

This exception can be handled as:

Python3




try:
    n = int(input())
    print(n * 10)
    
except EOFError as e:
    print(e)


Output:

EOF when reading a line
